Adding VeSTige support in LMMS on Ubuntu 14.04

The Linux Multimedia Studio(LMMS) is one of the widely used synthesizers in the free world. The default installation is straightforward, however, I noticed on my Ubuntu 14.04 64bit machine, the VeSTige plugin(VST) wasn’t loading at all!

The support for 64bit version was luckily found in PPA by IRIE Shinsuke.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:irie/lmms && sudo apt update && sudo apt install -y lmms wine

After installing the packages, one has to create a device node pointing the lmms libraries, this can be done using winecfg command. See the screenshot.


Once done, you may now open your favorite lmms, drag VeSTige from Instrument plugins  to Beat+Baseline Editor and click on VeSTige to load the plugin(dll) file. See the screenshot.

That’s all folks 🙂
